About the artwork

Matt Lambros has an artistic approach that constitutes both exploration and documentation. He criss-crossed the United States for several years in search of derelict sites and photographed around forty of them. This image belongs to the "After the Final Curtain series" a very vast project by the photographer, which reveals the history and architecture of these remains of the 20's and 30's. This site is the Uptown Theatre in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The artist seeks not only to capture its splendour, whose historical and cultural imprint is very strong, but also to draw attention to this forgotten venue, brimming with nostalgia. The play of light restores life to the place, the light awakens the architecture: plunging into the empty spaces and infusing the decor with new humanity. Once major sites of social celebrations, now abandoned and deserted, the theatres and cinemas seen by Matt Lambros waver between past and present, between splendour and decadence.
